Whether the Indians front office has been asking for it or not, Perez decided to give it to them...

Central, The Detroit Tigers. Manny Acta used guys in his line-up that haven’t produced any offense at all for the Indians. He had Matt Laporta in the game, a guy that is...

He could dial it up to 96 mph — average fastball velocity of 95.8 mph in 2007 — and threw a top-notch, looping...
In an interview with FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, Cleveland Indians All-Star closer Chris Perez was asked to discuss the difference between his team and the Detroit Tigers. He obliged, and rather handsomely.

As a handful of our nation’s best orators take to the stage in Charlotte, North Carolina, amidst the pomp and circumstance and Springsteen, those sequestered in Cleveland, Ohio have felt words, albeit more regionalized, reverberate though...
